Shure KSM137SL instrument condenser is a popular choice for hi-hats and overheads in either studio or live sound situations.
KSM137 is an end-address condenser microphone (pencil style) with a single cardioid polar pattern. Designed for studio use, yet rugged enough for live applications. It can withstand extremely high sound pressure levels (SPL). Its low self-noise and extended frequency response make it ideal for recording instruments.
Not only good for “hats and overheads”, KSM137 can be deployed for string sections, piano, even choral work. Use it as a spot mic for lead violin in the school orchestra, to really help the sound ‘come alive’.
The included hard case is a handy addition, to help keep your microphone safe during transit between gigs or sessions.
